Our Educators ensure all children’s programs reflect the Early Years Learning Framework, National Quality Standards, and follow the principles of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. Our program is child initiated allowing for engaging, stimulating experiences which are flexible to meet each individual child.
All Children are treated equally, embracing difference and working closely with our families to enrich the lives of each child as they learn about their community and the world we live in.
We have a healthy menu for the children to enjoy, which is continuously reviewed and updated to meet each child’s daily nutritional needs.
Stepping Stone Brooklyn Park’s educators are dedicated early childhood professionals all committed, caring, enthusiastic, passionate, hardworking, and looking forward to creating new relationships with you all.
We look forward to caring for and educating your children in the very important early years of their lives.
Meet the Centre Director
Hi my name is Joanne Sanger and I am the Centre Director at Stepping Stone Brooklyn Park.
I joined the Stepping Stone (SA) family in 2017 as a Leading Educator at our Lockleys centre before transferring to West Beach as the Assistant Director. I am really excited to be given the opportunity to take on the role as Centre Director as our new purpose built centre at Brooklyn Park.
I have worked in the early education and care industry for the past 24 years. During this time I have had the pleasure of working with all ages of children from birth to Year 7. I have been privileged to work in varying roles across the industry and gained experience which I bring into my new role.
My passion to deliver successful outcomes for all children drives my own professional development and growth where continuous improvement is key. I look forward to coaching, mentoring and building a strong culture within my team. This will ensure that our Centre becomes an extension of your homes where you, our families and children feel safe and have a sense of belonging.
I have 2 children of my own, they keep me very busy but I wouldn’t have it any other way. In my free time I enjoy mini getaways, camping and spending time with my family and friends.
At Stepping Stone Brooklyn Park we aim to build secure and respectful relationships with all children and their families. We aim to have all children feel safe to develop at their individual stages in a welcoming environment that allows children the chance to explore and learn through play.
I, along with our team of Educators, look forward to showing you around our remarkable centre.
